Linde pullover or Linde Tee features large heart shaped leaves with a pronounced stem and vein like lime tree leaves.
It is worked top down, in the round with a circular yoke. The increases are invisibly worked in the leaves. The body is worked in garter stitch. At the waist 2 stems emerge that form the I-cord buttonholes and the stem of the pocket leaves.
Pocket lining, hem and cuffs are worked in a contrasting color.

DK, worsted or Aran weight can be used, as long as you get gauge. The Aran weight is a bit harder to work, but it gives a denser fabric and a little retro touch.

Instructions for both short- or 3/4 sleeved.
